Katy, Texas

In the mid-1800s Katy was known as Cane Island. Named for the creek that still runs through the area (now a branch of Buffalo Bayou). The creek was filled with cane presumed to have been planted for fur trapping by earlier residents. In the middle of the flat coastal prairie – this ‘island’ of cane was surrounded by an ocean of tall grass; thus the area became known as Cane Island.

LDS History

Joseph Smith sent Lucien Woodworth to Austin in 1844 to meet with Sam Houston to negotiate the purchasing of large amounts of land. The negotiations ended with the death of Joseph. In 1845 Lyman Wight, known as “The Wild Ram of the Mountains” led 200 Mormons to Texas. They were attracted to the soon-to-be state for its warmer climate and the prospects of converting American Indians to their religion.
